i think our -- our most likely scenario that we see is even after assad falls, it is probably more fractional was nation -- fractionalization. for some. of time, there would be continued intersectoral competition and fighting, which would be localized. ofre are literally hundreds these militia groups that are fighting us on a local basis, in the north and east of the country. they are gaining more control of the area. i think that from an intelligence perspective, that is what we see. he even after he falls, there is a current presence in the north, about 65% of the population of syria, about 22.5 million people are sunni. we expect sunni arabs as well. >> there is a lot of speculation as to how assad is actually funding all of this, and what his reserve levels are, and where he goes from here. what do you assesses the current level of financial provided to the assad regime by the iranians, hezbollah, the russians?
